With engraved frontis portrait, numerous illustrations and facsimiles. Buxton Forman, (1842-1917), a noted editor and bibliographer, was exposed in 1934 for his complicit role in forgeries of the works of Morris, Shelley, Keats and other Victorian authors. Includes an Appendix with Morris's contributions to Periodicals, Lectures, Addresses and Kelmscott Publications. This bibliography is more than comprehensive but note that some items included in this bibliography are forgeries.
